Stirring, impressively detailed. "
A small gem of military and naval history reminiscent in many ways of Barbara Tuchman's "The Guns of August." The authors have two stories to tell. The first is a brilliant narration of a short, violent clash in the freezing fogs and mountainous seas of the South Atlantic. The other is an informed analysis of the political decision-making that led to the conflict, raising those larger questions of war and peace which modern man approaches on bended knee. "
Will probably endure as the standard history of the campaign.
